Below, we’ll take a look at every Netflix Original coming in April 2018 but be warned, this list is far from complete.

Aggretsuko (Season 1)

A quick challenge for you, picture anime. Now burn that image as you’re way off as to what this new original series will be delivering. The creator of Hello Kitty has a lesser-known character under his belt too which is this cute little Red Panda. Here’s the thing though, this Red Panda is working as an office associate in the accounting department of a highly respected trading company. Underappreciated, the panda takes her anger out by performing heavy metal Karaoke sessions. Does that sound Japanese enough for you?
